Global Cyber Risk Lowers to Moderate Level in 2H’ 2022


The current global cyber risk index is at +0.01, considered a moderate risk level and higher than 1H’2022 when it was -0.15. Globally, this means many organizations have been doing better at preparing for an attack (CPI). In this iteration, we also saw an improvement in the CTI, meaning respondents felt the threat landscape improved. This may be due to ransomware appearing to drop during the second half of 2022.

Digging into each of the four regions, North America’s CRI was the most elevated of the regions coming in at -0.10, with their CPI worsening negligibly from 5.30 to 5.29 (a lower CPI number means higher risk), and their CTI dropped from 5.63 to 5.39 (a lower CTI means lower risk). While the CRI improved from -0.33 to -0.10, the improvement is due to the respondents indicating the CTI was more improved than the CPI worsened and is still in the elevated range.

Europe’s overall CRI improved from -0.12 to +0.12, which put them in the moderate range and was the most positive of all regions. Europe’s preparedness improved from 5.05 to 5.39, but their threat index was worse, 5.17 in 1H to 5.27 in 2H, but due to their preparedness overcoming the threat landscape led to a better CRI.

Asia/Pacific saw their cyber risk move into the moderate risk level again after a brief moment in the elevated risk level due to a significant decrease from the second half (-0.11 to +0.05). Their improved
